Makhanda 2019 Freedom Day Celebrations

On Saturday 27 April, I was lucky enough to cover the Freedom Day celebrations in Makhanda, which gave me the unique opportunity to be within a 5m radius of the President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa. While others at Grocott’s Mail were tasked with the writing and social media updates of the event, I was given the task of taking great photos. Here are the best photos that I took on the day:

However, the highlight of the day on the whole was the official military flyovers and the photos I managed to get while experiencing the full military parade:

Here are the rest of the photos from the day:
